"Through the history of mankind, the times most recorded in mythology and song are those of great deed and fantastic adventures. Such a tale is the story of, "Thexus - The Last Man." Rynado warrior Thexus is called upon by the mystical spirits of the Cas'Lu forest to find an ancient artifact known as the Dragon's Tear. Forged from the bones of an evil king and boiled in blood, the magical idol would render the man who possesses it invincible. But, beyond the realms of the forest,...

ML2 has been one of my most ambitious projects. It took about a year to film. It shouldn't have taken so long except for some casting disasters, but hey... that's life. I am proud (and glad) that this is the last film I edited linear. Believe it or not, this hour long flick was edited on 2 VCR's, you must keep that in mind when watching it. I now edit on a non-linear editing system and I'm never going back. ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Action Movies, low budget movies

A very very low-budget live commercial for Duz laundry soap. Very cheaply made, particularly compared with the Ivory soap commercial in the same broadcast. Aired on a CBS daytime show. Topics: Classic TV Commercial, Low budget, Low-Budget, Cheap, Laundry Soap, Advertising, Advertisement, Duz
Not sure what this is, but it appears to be one of those syndicated filler drama TV shows, aired in an quarter-hour time-slot. Closing credits are missing. Note: Contains some dated racial stereotyping. Personally, and this is just my opinion, I find the use of real locations to provide some merit to this dated short. I hope this is public domain.

A 1955 psa for save driving. This aired in a daytime show, hence why it is very basic. I believe the voice-over may have been live. Topics: Classic PSA, PSA, Public Service Announcement, Cheap, Low budget, Low-budget
A really low budget 1953 commercial for Duz laundry soap (not a detergent at the time). This was taken from a daytime program. Notice how the guy holds the box of Duz as if it were a loved one. Topics: Classic TV Commercial, Duz, Low budget, Low-Budget, Cheap, Laundry Soap, Advertising,...
An episode of "Dr I.Q.", a short-lived and intentionally low-budget television game show that aired on ABC. A simple "question and answer" quiz show. The host tells us at the beginning of the broadcast that it was *not* rehearsed. Features promos for other ABC series (not sure of the copyright status of these promos). Very few episodes survive of this series. (thanks to TimL2009 for providing the date) ( 2 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, Television, Quiz show, ABC, 1950s, 50s, Fifties, 1958, Low-budget, Low budget
Episode 15 marches once more into the low budget end of the cinematic pool and focuses on 1980's Without Warning and 1983's The Deadly Spawn. They both attempt to tell the story of an extraterrestrial entity who is interested in much more than Reese's Pieces. Without Warning features Jack Palance and Martin Landau in roles that truly test the bounds of the art of acting. The Deadly Spawn is an amazing piece of low budget film making and succeeds on every level as it tells the story of a small... Topics: deadly spawn, podcast, movie, low budget, without warning

The lurid title could easily side-track you from what is essentially an extremely frightening exploration of a woman's descent into madness. You can read it, of course, in a material sense as the title suggests; but everything in this film has the potential to signify something else entirely, and its this ambiguity that makes this film so macarbe and interesting.
